The thing about emergency stop buttons is that they tend to be highly
visible, in obvious locations, and there are
often big signs. You shouldn't need a map to help you find one because
they're for rapid use in an emergency.

Maybe for petrol stations it's a good idea, if there's only one such button
for all the pumps.  But even then you're
not going to look at a map to find it, you'll look for the sign.

So I'm not surprised they haven't been mapped very often.
